As a fellow Wexford man Tinnion, you’ll know that we’ve become accustomed to band-wagoners a long time ago. When the unglamorous ties roll around at the start of the next season you know you can always rely on the ultras to be there for you.
I was thrown on Tuesday night during the reserve team match when the sole on my trustee left astro boot ripped off. It became panic after the game when I realised there was a hole after appearing in one of my gloves too. I wore new astro boots around the house yesterday evening to try to get acclimated, while I also spent some time firing a football off the wall in the hallway and testing out the grip on my new gloves when catching the rebounds. Not ideal at all to be going into a crunch game with untested boots and gloves.
Just had a flashback to Rocko’s pre-match team talk:
Rocko: We don’t want to overestimate these lads but we’re only six points ahead of them with 2 games left so they’re decent enough. Take out the game we beat them in earlier this season and we’d only be 3 points ahead of them so we need to be at it from the start.
Me: Nah, we’d be level with them.
Me: We’d be level.
cesc4: Yeah, we’d be level.
Rocko: No, we wouldn’t. We’d be 3 points ahead of them.
Jugs: Nah, there would have been a 6 point swing. We’d be 3 points less if we lost and they’d have 3 points more if they beat us.
Everyone: Eh, we’d be level.
Rocko: Well, what if we lost and they didn’t win that game? We’d be 3 points ahead, right?
Me: Eh, that wouldn’t have been possible, you fooking idiot. How could we lose and they still not win?
Smelly: What would the table be like if our first game with them was a draw?
